Wolfhound puppy: how to choose and what to ask the breeder? WikiPet.ru
Before choosing an Irish Wolfhound puppy, weigh the pros and cons. Do you need such a big dog? Do you have the strength, time and finances to properly grow and maintain a pet? Who will stay with the dog if you need to go on vacation or a business trip?
Do not rush to choose an Irish Wolfhound puppy. Visit exhibitions, chat with breeders and owners of Irish wolfhounds.
Be sure to meet both parents of the puppy you like. It’s great if you can see the puppies that have grown from previous litters, so you get an idea who will grow out of your pet.
It is better to take an Irish Wolfhound puppy at the age of 60 days. Puppies of the Irish Wolfhound at this age are active, friendly and do not show aggression.
The place where the puppies live should be clean. An unpleasant odor should alert.
A healthy Irish Wolfhound puppy has clean eyes, nose and ears, skin without sores and crusts. The baby should be well-fed, but without a bloated abdomen.
Ask what vaccinations have already been done, what else needs to be done, and what the puppies are fed with. At first, follow the recommendations of the breeder in matters of feeding.
